Strange, the usage of "u" was never mentioned in previous lessons. I was robbed :(

it's in the hints and tips in each lesson :-)

September 19, 2014

So "U" is the the formal way of saying "you" and the most informal way in english. :)

    How do you know when to put "jullie" and when to put "jij/je" ?

    February 25, 2015


    If you are from the Southern US, just translate "jullie" in your head as "y'all." Don't put that in the lesson, though. The -en verb ending is your clue that whatever is going on is y'all, and not you (one person). As far as je/jij, what I understand so far is that it has to do with emphasis. "Je" is the normal version without any special emphasis. "Jij" is used when you REALLY want to make a point about who is doing something. "YOU are eating the sandwich--I'm not." I've only been at this for a few days, so that may not be the best explanation, but it seems pretty close.

    Yall really just needs to become standard. Its really needed in the langauge.

    I selected the correct translation, but it tells me that I'm wrong? It does this quite frequently.

    Then you probably are wrong quite frequently

    Clearly I'm not when it tells me that my selection is incorrect, but then tells me the correct translation is the one I chose.

    idk its wierd cause of the "U" but broodie or what ever is NOT correct for sandwich... C is the only one with "boterham" so thats what i picked ... ive never seen the U before it must be a typo

    November 11, 2014


    sorry 3* not C

    What's the difference between jullie and jij

    April 19, 2018


    See answers above. Jullie is plural and jij is singular.

    Some people mention "U" here. What I'm looking at is "Jij eet een boterham."

    Also, some people mention multiple choice. I got this through an audio exercise. There is no multiple choice for me.
